Talking Boos not a picky eater....

I just had to share this. Last evening we were sitting down to dine. Boo usually hangs out, chews his bully stick while we eat. Last night he sat and stared at the counter for like 10 min. Then he started growling. Then barking. So i went over and asked him "what" "what do you want buddy?" I started picking things up and he kept growling till I got to the bag of mini bagels. When my hand got to those he started to wag, and wiggle and jump around like maniac. So I gave him one. I wish I had a camera he sat there holding it in his mouth like he say OOOOO. It was too darn cute! Then he chewed it a while and dropped it and walked over to the counter again starring at the salad bowl, same thing, growling and then barking at it. So I picked it up, he jumped around, so I put some things our for him to try. He sat down and ate small pieces of celery, a radish, cuke and carrot. But his favorite hands down was broccolli. I think I have a vegitarian on my hands....and it was so funny he chewed every single slowly like he was savering them. Not like how he eats his kibble, which he inhales - no chewing involved!!!! Aren't Havs just a laugh a minute???? I just love him to bits.

First, I have to say that Boo is very cute. Also, I have a friend who has a Portugese Water Dog, and she only eats veggies and eggs. She does not like meat. And her favorite thing is wax beans and green beans.

Kodi will whine like that for pasta. He will only eat a bagel if it is buttered.

What a cutie Boo is...

But...you do realize you just taught Boo how to beg for food and get it.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Awww...how SWEET!

I wish my girl would eat more veggies...she's definately a MEAT girl (I homecook, so she just eats people food) but that makes it really hard for me to work in vitamins, so I have to supplement and trick her into eating veggies! LOL ...

Broccoli is really good for them Just be careful, he may start refusing kibble and holding out for a salad! lol

My girl is also a meat girl, the pricer the better. Watch out with creating a monster out of Boo though- sounds like he is already training you!

Ya know Paige somewhere in the back of my mind I thought about that fact! Im creating a monster here!!! When we first got him I was all gung-ho about being much more strict and disciplined with this dog. The goldens had the whole house as thier playground and I vowed to be much stricter with "Boo" - ya think he's got me wrapped???? One little cute look or act and I crumble!!!!

Do you guys think it would be a bad thing to add some veggie or pasta? I am thinking that they would be good training rewards ??? He seems to drop everything for cheese and pasta too...

Tori's favorite treat, hands down, is carrots. She will do anything to get one.

Boo sounds adorable!

Yes, you can add those things, especially if you want to have them benefit your training by making them rewards. I prefer to not give treats outside of meal time unless we are training.

Snobunny,

I bet you could work in veggies, cheese, etc. I would just be real careful and only give it for training and not with meals. Because they will start eating everything BUT the kibble and looking at you for more people food! lol, Trust me on that one But it is a bit better than some commercial treats/biscuits, I mean..healthier and less fatty.
